Come in to Rue Franklin on December 6, 2016 to get a taste of Champagne, France with wines from Billecart-Salmon Winery. This Buffalo wine tasting is supported by Gates Circle.
Billecart-Salmon and its History:
It all began in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon founded a Champagne House that was above all conscious of the excellence of its wines. Since then, every member of the Billecart family has been committed to perpetuate the family tradition through standing by the immutable oath: ‘Give priority to quality, strive for excellence’.
Today, the mythical House of Billecart-Salmon wins international recognition and regularly praised by their peers for exception wine from the region. Bilecart-Salmon truly captures the essence of Champagne – a wonder to be enjoyed.
Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve Wine is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. This cuvee has reflections of a straw yellow color. It stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse.
Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Wine is a pale and bright pink color that is adorned with warm glints of gold. Its delicate slowly rising bubbles give it a persistent mousse. This cuvée unveils a subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits. Its special method of vinification gives this cuvée a light, elegant flavour, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.
Billecart-Salmon Demi-Sec Champagne is identical to that of the Brut Réserve (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier), however, the dosage is greater.
Please note that these special wines will be available for order on the night of the dinner.
